Information about the Oregon Hairy Triton:
The Oregon Hairy Triton is a member of the Gastropoda family, which are marine mollusks. It is a large predatory snail. It can be found along the coastline from Alaska, all the way down the Pacific Coast to California. They are also found on the other side of the ocean in Northern Japan. While not much is really know about the feeding habit of these snails, it is believed they prey on other mollusks and perhaps even sea urchins. Despite the common name, they are not hairy, but instead are covered with periostracum, which is a thin organic coating or "skin" which is the outermost layer of the shell. The name was given to honor the Oregon Territory by conchologist John Howard Redfield in 1846. Many decades later this gastropod was named the official state shell of Oregon.
